If we can prepare students for areas of workforce need, we’re not only helping them when they graduate, enter viable career fields and best position them for lifelong success; we’re supporting the local economy. If we can bolster the local economy, we’re going to help our communities. So what we’re trying to do in career technology programming every day is preparing students for lifelong success by graduating them with skillsets that ensure they’re gainfully employed and can be positive, productive, and contributing members of this community.
